board of education is sparking a fire storm affecting every florida school. this week officials released a plan setting different expectations for students of different races. for example, the plan calls for 90% of asian students to be at or above grade level reading in 2018 compared to 74% of black students. similar standards apply to math. the school board aims to improve performance of k through 12 students. parents worry the students won't be held in the same standards like they were in the real world. welcome to you. i also want to note that the state's education commissioner agreed to come on but declined late yesterday saying she had a prior commitment. so do you think the plan is racist. >> i don't know if i would call the plan racist. we need to call hout the board of education for making a concession that really just reinscribes our perceptions about race from the past the problem with this particular set of bempbl marks is it mixes concession that essentially some groups will not perform as others when they really need a cohesive statewide benchmark that cuts across race and d

that obama has been bad for women. actually, you know who's really suffered in this economy? blue collar non-educated white males in places like ohio. those guys are really in deep trouble. in some respects women have been doing better out of this i think than those guys have. so i do think that women are important constituency, but i do think there's a lot more depth and go into subtlety than what we've traditionally thought about. biden may go in that direction. i think if i were ryan, honestly i think the way ryan has to handle that is, i'm catholic, this is what i believe and get away from the rape question. >> women married to men who don't have jobs, then you're talking about vote perhaps on those economic issues as well. >> we have to cut it off real quick. when we come back though we are all going to give our unsolicited advice to one unsuspecting target. stay right here on cnn's "the situation room." imimagaginine e ifif y yod alalwawaysys s seeee l e [m[mususicic]] inin t thehe b besest t lil. eveverery y titimeme o of f. ououtdtdoooorsrs, , oro. trtranansisititiononss® ls auautotomamatiti
